Entrepreneurship education in agriculture: The EARTH University approach

Entrepreneurship is an essential component of agricultural development and is receiving increasing interest, especially in the developing world. However, until very recently, entrepreneurship has not been a theme included in programs of higher education in agriculture. This paper highlights the importance of entrepreneurship in agricultural development and describes in some detail the entrepreneurial capacity building program at EARTH University in Costa Rica. The paper concludes with a discussion of the challenges and possibilities for developing agribusiness entrepreneurial education programs in the African context.
